Akomplice’s roots in Brazil run deep. Our latest philanthropic effort stems from our satellite office in South Brazil and is a testament to our investment in youth culture. For the impending capsule collection, we have partnered with Original Kids on a two-piece collaborative t-shirt series. The capsule collection is our latest installment in a long lineage of philanthropy. Rather than follow the typical charity structure, however, we brought the beneficiaries, in this case foster children in South Brazil, into the creative framework. The children were presented with a pair of images and encouraged to add their own artistic interpretation through the medium of paint. The freshly reinterpreted images were then scanned, printed and emblazoned on a pair of truly unique t-shirts and crew necks. In addition to fostering creativity, we are going to donate 50% of the profits garnered from the capsule collection to the same foster care children that were tapped to collaborate. While we maintain a stronghold in hip-hop culture through our work with Raekwon, J Dilla, and Joey Bada$$, it’s our unwavering commitment to philanthropy that sets us apart within the industry. This is not the first time we have chosen to give back, and it will not be the last. Look for the capsule collection to be available worldwide at Akomplice retailers, and hit our webstore Saturday, April 26th at 2:26PM EST.
